Early this month I flew cross country to visit my brothers family and meet my new baby nephew in California! My Fourth of July was spent at a community park eating a hamburger, petting animals in a little petting zoo they set up and later on running through the sprinklers with my nephew and catching the best fireworks show I had ever seen!

Truth be told, I hate the color orange especially on me! So, I have had this vintage dress in my collection for quite some time and never wore it. But I decided to give it a go last week and rock this pretty novelty ballerina print!

Today’s outfit is the reason I say “Play dress-up everyday at Storyland Vintage!” I woke up on the later side this morning, decided it would be a “casual” Friday, that I wanted to wear my high waisted jeans and that I didn’t want to bother with drying my hair. So wet messy bun and vintage scarf in the hair it was! When I picked out the vintage blouse I realized how my look was taking on a very Rosie the Riveter vibe, and rolled up my jeans a bit and put on heeled sandals to dress it up a bit more. I guess someone else agreed because as I was on the side of the road getting some delicious Ralph’s Italian ice a man yelled “ROSIEEEEE” at me out of a passing car. Later in the day I felt very patriotic carrying a flag on a pole around a store for my Mother, just don’t tell anyone my scarf had a Canada print haha! 😉 It may not be for everyone, but my look made me feel very empowered and vivacious today and if there’s one thing I believe in, it’s that fashion should be fun and make you smile, making others smile is just a bonus, kittens!

The end of May marked my favorite time of the year: Lake George ELVISFEST!!! After having such a blast at my first ‘fest last year, nothing was going to stop me from a weekend with the king! 😉 This year was even more special to me because not only was it the *11*th(my favorite number) Annual Lake George Elvisfest but I was also single this time around and was enthused to be in a sea of Elvis’ and show my mother a really fun birthday weekend!
One of the greatest parts about being a vintage buyer/hunter/’picker is that you never know what you are going to find and what kinda place you will be visiting! I decided to venture to a sale one day and didn’t expect to find much and I was just going to stop by because I was in the area. To get to the sale my Mom and I had to drive through these large brick towers and past residences that reminded me of apartments I had seen in European movies. I felt like I was suddenly out of the country! On the way to the sale I passed street names like Featherbed Lane and Princess Gate and the tiniest most charming buildings fit for a fairytale! There was a pond with a fountain in the center when you arrived and of course there was a duck in that pond almost perfectly arranged to be swimming around it. The sale was inside one of these tiny, vintage residences and I managed to score some vintage jewelry including my current obsession: vintage clip-ons! On the way out of the area I snapped a few photos and of course had to jump out the car and have my Mom snap a photo of me in front of one of the majestic towers.
I ended up posting a photo on my Facebook and immediately one of my girlfriends “yelled” at me for going to *Midgetville* without her! I was cracking up, for years I had read about the town on LI oddities websites and had always wanted to check out the tiny homes but I had no idea when I was there that, that’s in fact where it was! How exciting and fun it was that I got to go to a sale in one of these homes And don’t worry Jen, I’ll take you with me next time!

I’m a 20 something year old female but I’m a total kid at heart. This is especially noticeable when I am in someplace new and in nature. Like when my boyfriend and I went out to Montauk last month and I had to run around in the water and pick up lots of rocks and shells…
Sometimes when I’m thrifting and see a great piece, I can’t grab it off the rack fast enough. The same goes for when I’m shopping on Etsy and spot a vintage Cat skirt. With 4 indoor cats + 1 outside cat/cat mother to my babies, I am a total cat lady and sucker to the feline printed items. When this great wrap skirt arrived in the mail, it surely did not disappoint ♥

I fell in love with a little vintage storefront, its in the sweetest little town where there are more vacant buildings than filled…I started dreaming up what I would do with it. Oh the things I would do and create in a storefront…someday, someday.

My name is Meg and I’m a mini golf master 😉 Okay, maybe not a master per say but I do love the sport! Yes, it is a sport just because I can wear heels and skirts and mini golf places are usually in such adorable surroundings does not disqualify it from being deemed one! ;p Anyway after I played, I met up with an old friend, Mr. Clown and we shared some laughs…god I am such a dork.
This summer trip to the Adirondacks consisted of….antiquing a mason jar of vintage buttons, ice cream cones, enjoying nature, finally finding an affordable vintage top hat, building campfires, funny spelling mistakes, winning scrabble games, finding a piece of artwork that means the world to me, sangria pitchers, fireworks, driving to Vermont and turning around, cool vintage diner tile and beautiful sunshine filled Summer days!
